I believe this school does try to be better academically, but do to parent/teacher communication it fails to do so. If the parent doesnt know their child is failing and the teacher fails to notify them then the parent wont take action until its to late in the year. I'am also constantly worried about my childs safety. My oldest son requires special ed and their special ed program is not good at all. My son had been attending this school for 3 months now and still hasn't received the proper equipment needed to help him during class. Actually the Special Ed program is hurting him right now rather then helping him. They are constantly pulling him out of class at the most vital times of the lesson.The Front desk staff r very rude. There is hardly any structure. Overall I will be happy to leaving.

The quality of academics at the Primary School continue to get better than previous years, this is contributed to the quality of teachers and highly talented intructional leaders. The teachers consistently assess the students progress and the tools that will prepare the students to succeed in their learning. Most of the extracurricular activities is available in Culture class. The students learned to movement, dancing, singing during their time in class. Also the students are given a morning and afternoon recess time for about 20 minutes. The only missing link in my opinion is the partnership with the parents. The level of parent participation could be better only if the parents feel that their is a need. At this time, it does not appear to be the number one priority for the majority of parents.

I feel this school really welcomes the parents to be involved in thier childs schooling, Parents are always invited to sit in thier childs class room and participate. The staff I find to be more then willing to answer any questions you have.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arizona used the Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) to test students in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8 and 10, writing in grades 5, 6, 7, and 10, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 10. GreatSchools' profiles currently show AIMS mathematics, reading and writing results. 2013 AIMS grade 10 results represent on-track 10th graders for the 2013 test year. AIMS is a standards-based test, which means that it measures how well students have mastered Arizona learning standards. Students must pass the grade 10 AIMS in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to meet or exceed state standards on the test.
